Written by Britain's Alan Bennett, whose works include the award-winning Broadway hit The History Boys, this poignant yet raunchily funny play tells the story of the shattered friendship between poet W. H. Auden and composer Benjamin Britten. Examining the unsettling desires of two difficult men, and the ethics of biography itself, it reflects on growing old, on talent and inspiration, and on persisting when all passion's spent. Met with wild acclaim upon its London debut in 2009, The Habit of Art is a complex and fascinating play about the intersection of creativity and desire. Learn More
Be very careful about parking and your personal safety in the area! Our car was broken into (window smashed to smithereens and contents rifled through/stolen) and we parked right across the street from the theater on Florida Street. Ironically we drove because we thought the 9-block walk from BART might be dicey!travel • Jan 18 2014 star this tip starred

Liberty Mitchell tells her truly astounding story with flair and gusto. Her backup band , The Fluffers, add fun dramatic accent and support. Video background supplements the story, adn starts us off with a "bang". We saw the opening preview night - the lively crowd added much to the energy of the room.
This show is recommended for ages 18 and older.
About the Ticket Supplier: Z Space StudioFounded in 1993 by David Dower, the Z Space Studio has become one of the nation's leading laboratories for the development of new voices, new works and new directions in American theater.
By creating a space where all types of artistic development can occur side by side, the Z Space has become what Berkeley Repertory Theatre's Artistic Director Tony Taccone describes as "a virtual bastion of creativity, a bubbling cauldron of new work, and a safe haven for unfettered creative expression."
Given the nature of development as a "behind the scenes" endeavor, the Studio's impact is often invisible to the general public. However, whether they know it or not, over 100,000 people across the country experience theater from artists that developed at the Studio through our three main programs (Word for Word Performing Arts Company, Z Plays Development, and Youth Arts).
The Z Space employs hundreds of artists each year in the process of developing new works -- creating work for a diverse audiences in fields as varied as solo performance, ensemble theater, puppetry, acrobatics, dance, and multimedia production.
